Reservations: Required

The landscaping of the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center, recipient of a LEED Gold Level certification, is designed to blend the buildings into the native Monticello woodlands with plantings of Virginia’s native plant species, including 40 species of trees, over 50 species of flowering shrubs, and 75 types of wildflowers and groundcovers. Join Peggy Cornett for a two-hour stroll through these rich habitats from the pavilions’ green roofs, through the rain-garden style greenway and to the African-American Graveyard.
